About Travel to Jaipur
Jaipur is a city which is notable for its red and pink sanstone forts and palaces. Located to the West of Delhi in India’s desert state of Rajasthan, Jaipur has its own distinctive culture and architecture. Jaipur is also a major tourists destination forming, alongside Delhi and Agra, what is commonly referred to as the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Indian tourism.
Jaipur has three main defensive forts, the Jaigarh Fort, and the Nahargarh Fort, and the Amer Fort. All three forts are located outside the city centre strategically placed on high ground and therefore with great views over the surrounding countryside. The oldest of these three forts is the Amer Fort, which was constructed in the 10th Century, and was the residence of local rulers until 1727 when the city of Jaipur was founded and the centre of regional governance moved from the fort and into the city. The Amer Fort covers an area of approximately 4 square kilometres and inside the defensive wall the gardens and building are set around 4 main courtyards.
The 18th Century saw the construction of a number large palaces in the then new city of Jaipur including the Hawa Mahal, the Jal Mahal and the City Palace. The most famous of the city centre buildings in Jaipur is the Hawa Mahal. The most distinctive feature of the Hawa Mahal is the street facing facade of the palace which features 953 intricately carved windows. These windows provided ventilation to the building, which is also known as the ‘Palace of the Winds’, as well as a vantage point for the ladies of the royal court to view the road outside without breaking strict rules about not being since publicly.
Another fascinating place to visit in Jaipur city centre is the Jantar Mantar. The Jantar Mantar is an 18th Century observatory with 19 very large astromical instruments, including the world’s largest sundail. The Jantar Mantar is historically very important and has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
